Alwar - Sariska Palace

Designed by a French architect, the Alwar - Sariska Palace was built by Maharaja Jai Singh in order to commemorate the visit of the Duke of Edinburgh to the Sariska Sanctuary. The majestic Sariska Palace was built in the 19th Century and was meant to be a hunting lodge for the Rajahs of Alwar. Every nook and corner of the Sariska Palace speaks of the regal past of the region and the palatial architecture is worth a visit.

The Sariska Palace is spread over a total area of 50 acres and is very close to the Sariska National Park. Today, the royal palace has been converted into a heritage hotel, Alwar - Sariska Palace. However, the charm and the royal ambiance of the palace have been kept intact, which allows tourists to gather an impression about the luxurious lifestyle of the Rajahs of Alwar.

Reaching the Sariska Palace is not a problem as it is just a 2 hours drive from the city of Jaipur from where one can hire a car or board a bus that travels to Sariska. There are also regular buses that ply between the Sariska Palace and the Alwar city.
